The food here is awesome! Reservations book up quickly and there's a reason for that! Hands down some of the best food in P-town. Don't miss!

Finally tried the tea-smoked duck, a Front Street specialty! It didn't disappoint. Great flavor and presentation. Forced myself to move from the Italian menu, which is hard to do! My favorite meal at Front Street: clams casino, a salad, a half-order of gnocchi bolognese, and any of the Italian entrees, such as pappardelle alla casalinga, veal saltimbocca, seafood fra diablo,...

Front Street is consistently excellent all around...food fantastic, service excellent, menu very varied from basic Italian to gourmet. Need to make reservations early since this place is always packed!

I went down those narrow stairs from the alleyway on main street with two friends last week and everyone agreed it was a great meal. I have a European perspective, and I have to bow to how effectively things can be done, and how consistently good the service and food usually is in the top third of what's offered in... More

Great service, fantastic food, nice atmosphere! One of the best places on the outer cape. Try: Eggplant Maria, Tuscan calamari, or just about anything is fantastic! Enjoy...Great bar too!

The food was to die for...melted in your mouth good. loved my lemon drop martini. The hostess, bartender and staff were super welcoming once we had been seated at the bar.

It seems oddly difficult to find really good food in town. We had countless tasteless, horrible and overpriced meals during our week stay. I was excited about the menu and some locals said it is one of the best in town (they only ever listed 2-3). Compared with restaurants in cities, it wasn't really very good, but compared with what...

Front Street is an upscale, fun restaurant at the tip of Cape Cod. Both natives and visitors have recommended Front Street and we finally gave it a shot. We were not disappointed. We made reservations (even in September reservations are necessary, especially on weekends) and were seated immediately upon arrival. We shared a lobster scampi appetizer which was out of... More

I've known about Front Street for years but this was the first time I had visited. Wow! On many levels. Dizzy Note: For those of us with hyper-sensitive hearing due to inner-ear imbalances, (or even if you don't have ear issues) the noise level in this charming but popular and packed restaurant is so loud, you may have to read...

Stopped in late on Thursday night, and got seated immediately. All courses served quickly and were great. I had the chicken saltimbocca. It was delightful, the flavors melded well and the pasta was cooked perfectly. All in all it was pleasant dinner with the staff there when you needed them, but not rushing you. Worth a repeat visit.
